Subject:Best way to monitor kismet_server remotely
Date:19:26:50 02/06/2006

Hey there,

I'm setting up a server with kismet_server among its services. The box runs apache wich is mostly used to monitor processes like apache itself, ssh, etc with munit (see if you want to know more about monit).

I'd like to add kismet to the list, this way I could easily start/stop kismet_server remotely from the web (without the need to ssh into the box), check for errors, etc.

Is there expert with monit?
This it what I added to /etc/monit/monitrc but it doesn't work

check process kismet with pidfile /var/run/
group wireless
start program = "/usr/local/bin/kismet_server"
stop program = "killall kismet_server"
if 5 restarts within 5 cycles then timeout

but it doesn't work.. any other ideas?
